Is Hyperconvergence Helpful for All Healthcare Organizations?

health tech magazine | December 03, 2019

Hyperconverged infrastructure combines storage, computing and networking into a single system. This architecture, compared with traditional data centers, makes HCI cheaper to operate, easier to manage, more scalable and more agile. It’s no wonder that enterprises in just about every industry are migrating to HCI and healthcare is no exception. Transparency Market Research predicts the healthcare industry’s share of the HCI market to have a compound annual growth rate of nearly 42 percent through 2025.This shift is partly the byproduct of two trends: the growing adoption of digital information storage systems and an increasing use of smartphone-based technologies for patient interaction, the firm says. For example, healthcare vendors such as Epic have spent the past few years making it easier to migrate applications such as electronic health records to an HCI environment.

Samsung and TPG Telecom will Test Australia’s First 5G vRAN with an Integrated 26GHz mmWave Solution

Samsung | July 09, 2021

Today, Samsung Electronics said it would collaborate with TPG Telecom to undertake Australia's first 5G virtualized RAN (vRAN) trial on 26GHz, utilizing an integrated mmWave solution for mobile and fixed wireless services. Samsung will put its vRAN solution at TPG Telecom's brand new Innovation Lab in Glebe, NSW, for the trial, the first type in the country. Furthermore, Samsung's newest 5G mmWave product, Compact Macro, will be implemented in the Glebe region. The announcement follows the April 2021 launch of Samsung's Networks Business in Australia. The firm has been exploring the delivery of Samsung's leading 5G mmWave technology to the country since then. TPG Telecom, a major mobile network provider in Australia, owns and runs a number of well-known mobile and internet brands in the country, including Vodafone. TPG Telecom has announced a AU$108 million commitment to buy spectrum in all accessible license areas in the 26GHz band, doubling its overall spectrum holdings. TPG Telecom will provide high-speed data services and immersive use cases to its mobile and home customers because of an abundance of mmWave spectrum.

3 ways to celebrate International VPN Day

NordVPN | August 20, 2021

NordVPN launches a new international event to bring more awareness to cybersecurity Virtual private network (VPN) was invented in 1993 and has become an essential cybersecurity tool for anyone who cares about their cybersecurity. In fact, at the moment, there are 142 million VPN users in the US alone and, according to Google Trends, the demand is growing constantly. “It is important that we celebrate the product which, in an age of cybercrime, protects our digital privacy by encrypting our network. It is also important to at least once a year bring awareness to cybersecurity threats and learn more about ways to stay secure. And that is what International VPN Day is for,” the cybersecurity expert at NordVPN Daniel Markuson comments. Below, Daniel Markuson suggests the best ways to celebrate International VPN Day on August 19: Evaluate your digital habits Many of us may be sure we know it all when it comes to privacy online. However, as the NordVPN report shows, the world scored only 65.2 out of 100 in the National Privacy Test last year. In 2020, 48,063 respondents from 192 countries responded to a test that consisted of 20 questions. It helped to evaluate their online privacy skills and knowledge, and the results showed that we still need to learn a lot. “Assessing yourself can be very valuable, and the National Privacy Test is a great way to do that. So, once a year, on International VPN Day, take the test and find out what skills you may still lack,” Daniel Markuson recommends. Learn about cybersecurity Once you take the test, it is time to improve your knowledge. The cybersecurity world is evolving every year, bringing in new ways to protect yourself. So, it is normal that a regular user may not know everything. The test helps to identify what extra security measures could make you more safe and private on the internet. There are many valuable learning resources available online, but here are some of the most important tips from Daniel Markuson: Don’t use the same password for everything. It’s like using the same lock for your car, apartment, and storage. Instead, create strong and unique passwords for every online account. Password managers like NordPass will be a great help here — they generate strong passwords and remember them for you. Do your best to avoid online scams. Do not click on a link unless you trust the source. And do not enter your credentials on shady websites. Read emails and the websites you visit carefully. If they look poorly written and the design seems off, they could have been set up by scammers. Use a VPN. A VPN is especially useful for anyone who uses public Wi-Fi hotspots — meaning all of us. Public Wi-Fi usually has an exceptionally low firewall when it comes to blocking hackers. This weak security allows hackers to place themselves between users and the Wi-Fi connection. You can’t be sure you're safe on such a network — unless you’re using a VPN. Lead by example Once you test yourself and learn something new, encourage others to do the same. The primary goal of International VPN Day is to bring more attention to privacy, security, and freedom on the internet and educate people around the world. So, contribute to this mission by inviting your friends and family to celebrate with you. ABOUT NORDVPN NordVPN is the world’s most advanced VPN service provider used by over 14 million internet users worldwide. NordVPN provides double VPN encryption, malware blocking, and Onion Over VPN. The product is very user-friendly, offers one of the best prices on the market, has over 5,000 servers in 60 countries worldwide, and is P2P-friendly.
